Monkton Wyld, Charmouth -  August/September 2020

 

A welcome return to this lovely Commercial site at Monkton Wyld, Charmouth on the Dorset/Devon border. We were located in the very large rally field with almost 50 units on site. A first chance to go rallying again for many of us, after many weeks of lock-down during the Covid pandemic.

This is a great site with very spacious pitches and award winning facilities and Electric Hook-up for many.

We took advantage of the wood-fired pizzas cooked on site from the back of a very ingenious mobile wagon. On other nights they had the Fish & Chip van in attendance and even a Pie night.

The Hunter' Lodge pub served us a good meal in their lovely conservatory restaurant overlooking the gardens.

Many people ventured out the the surrounding towns of Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Axminster and Beer.

A good time was had by all and we received many thanks from those attending.

 

The New Year Rally 2019/2020

 

This rally took place at the St Leonards Hotel just West of Ringwood on the A31.

This was our second New Year visit to this venue and we again parked the units on grass, around the back of the hotel.

On the Monday evening we boarded the good ship "Jolly Roger" dressed as pirates under the leadership of "Captain Mad Mike"

After the buffet there followed an evening of fun & games, with only a few scurvy naves being made to walk the plank.

On New Year's Eve we accurately predicted that the country would be leaving the European Union and we celebrated Boris's victory with a red, white and blue theme and danced the night away to Rod & Debbie's disco.

 

French Rally at Benodet 2019

 

We stayed at "Camping du Letty near Benodet in the Southern Brittany region of France.

This was another very memorable rally on a great site next to the sea.

We were there just before the school holidays so it was very quiet and peaceful but very hot. The indoor and outdoor swimming pools were well used and the shop was also very well patronised with it's on-site baked goods available fresh every day.

Our experienced rally officers, Anne & Arthur organised several trips out, including several by boat. We organised lift sharing for those with motorhomes and other days we rode our bikes and explored the local back roads. In the evenings we entertained ourselves with a Chinese Auction, Cheese & Wine and many other get togethers, including the ongoing Boules Competition.
